For the past 4 days I’ve been taking photographs of things that I’m grateful for. I’ve been using my iphone (which I gratefully received as a birthday present recently), since not only is my DSLR out of action, but with 2 young children there’s only so much I can carry around with me. And besides, it’s fun.
I’m pleased to report that day 4 has been a good one. Despite 4 days of constant rain, very little sunshine (enough to knock the glow off anyone’s happiness), and my childrens’ play dates being cancelled because everyone we know seems to be sick, I’m still feeling grateful. And happy.
And I think it might be contagious. When I photographed friends, and told them it’s because I’m grateful to have them in my life, you should have seen the smiles. And the gratitude they threw back at me was breathtaking!
My friend told me her partner had seen my facebook posts and had started noticing the small things he’s grateful for in their lives. She sounded grateful.
Yes, I think there really is something to this gratitude thing.
